Austin added to England squad

Warrington Wolves halfback Blake Austin has been added to the latest England Elite Performance Squad.

The 27 year old was born in Sydney, but qualifies to play for England through his maternal grandmother.

As a result, Austin would not be able to play representative rugby league if he was to return to Australia.

Four players have dropped out of the original squad. Kallum Watkins has been left out as a result of his transfer to Gold Coast Titans, as the Elite Performance Squad is only for Super League players.

Other players left out include Joe Greenwood of Wigan Warriors and Rob Mulhern of Hull KR as they have both dropped to the Knights squad.

Adam Milner of Castleford Tigers has also dropped out.
